well it got weighed this morning .....





I was surprised TBH .... 925kgs is what the clock says ... couldn't get any closer to it to get a good pic


then it got shifted out the way for now ... and made itself useful in a supporting role .... for Del's placcy pig chassis ....





I've been threatened he's gonna collect it at the weekend LOL .... together with Mr Sanders


shoved it in there with the hook in the eye ... went in sweet as ... some serious flexibility at the end of the boom/dipper .... could put that just about anywhere even sat on the armrest ..... Sparty had taken up residence in the seat and left him and the 'Drema here, 'til he'd vacated .... and I'd had me lunch





Found a bit of 12mm for Rob65 's chuck key for a tommy bar..... really needs to be 1/2", but it'll do for now ...





he did a nice job on freeing it off and cleaning it up ... works well enough for what i want it for .


been another stunning day here today .... sat after tea (which i don't do very often) letting it go down a bit ...enjoying the evening sun ...







........ and me phone rings ..... Russel, me crane mate ..... what was i doing tomorrow?
Did I fancy a few hours slinging for him ... got a silo to take down (amongst other things) and wanted someone who's not afraid of a basket .... plus the site he's on's ticketed bloke is ****ing clueless ... got the paperwork ... and that's as far as it goes.
and he's terrified of the basket
So ... gotta go to work tomorrow LOL ... will be a good craic with Russ ...... an' I'll get to have a play with his new crane probably


He said " why don't you do your ticket Gra ... could keep you real busy " LOL ... like I'm not already !!!!
